    I didn't even read the article but the picture is making me laugh my ass off for some reason. I guess because it just seems so ridiculous, like behind every brick wall is a giant mound of salt, they just keep it in piles, don't even put it in giant metal containers or anything. Just wall to wall salt, stacked 3 stories high.

    I am also wondering why the salt is all loose, and shit.

    Also I have no idea who the explosive gentleman is and his relation to the topic at hand.

    In America, first you get the salt, then you get the power, then you get the women.

    First they lose all that inventory and now you are laughing at them?

    my thoughts exactly.

    Also, like the TS stated ... why the hell is all the salt not contained by anything other then the building itself?

    It probably was. I would guess that when the container ruptured the salt easily crushed the wall it was next to.

    Damn that's some bad luck. Someone spilled the salt. Guess whoever fucked up should throw some over their left shoulder.

    Lol nice reference.
